Here it is:

START array
1 3 0

START disks

START layout
32 1 1 0

START queue
fifo 100

I suppose the only parameter I can experiment with is the stripe unit
of 32?

Here's what dmesg has to say about my disks; 

sd1 at scsibus0 targ 1 lun 0: <DEC, RZ25     (C) DEC, 0700> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
sd1: 406MB, 1476 cyl, 9 head, 62 sec, 512 bytes/sect x 832527 sectors

If I used that information, a cylinder is 34 blocks, so I'm pretty close
at that. No, there's probably not much to do than replace the old disks

While I'm pasting from dmesg: why does it say:

/dev/sd1e is not clean!

for each of the components during boot?
